Smart Architectural Aluminium has announced the launch of a new, woodgrain foil finish on a specially-selected range of the company’s popular Visofold 1000 slide-folding door and Alitherm 800 window profiles.

Woodgrain foil is a laminated finish that closely emulates the colour, grain and texture of timber; the foils being heat-bonded to the aluminium profiles to create a beautiful, durable and long-lasting finish.

Eddie Robinson, Smart’s Managing Director said: “We are delighted to offer this new finish option for our customers, building on the extensive colour palette and finish options that we already provide. The woodgrain finish provides an attractive alternative for customers who want to replicate traditional timber products whilst also enjoying the thermal, efficiency and low maintenance benefits that a modern thermally-broken aluminium system delivers.”

The woodgrain finish is available in a choice of either Irish Oak or Black Cherry.
